Origins

This article is adapted from text and figures I made for the article on Wikipedia of the same name in a series of edits in July 2008. The text has been cleaned up and links to references updated. Some new figures added. John R. Brews 20:00, 14 February 2011 (UTC) The banked turn example was added by myself to the Wikipedia article in a series of edits in May 2008. John R.
